    The hardy followers of our mystic path have strong backs, quick minds, 
    and loyal hearts.  Joining our armed struggle is not to be taken
    lightly.  They have sworn a blood oath to live by the tenets and protect
    the secrets of our ancient Gnostic cabal, as they progress into 4th 
    dimensional beings of pure light.  The only punishment for failure is to 
    be burned alive!  Those who would cross the cloven-hoofed path of Hathor 
    should fear for their very souls, as retribution is surely swift when
    She manifests as the awesome power of DemonSeed Elite! 

    What follows are short biographical sketches of publicly-known 
    initiates to CULT OF THE DEAD COW.  Their other names cannot be made 
    public, as speaking them would manifest them into the material plane... 
    hungry.

        bloodline and thus rules by Divine Right.  He owns two pairs of 
        leather pants, and the 'G' is for 'gnarly, gnot gnice.'

    Franken Gibe | member since 1986 | cDc co-founder and byproduct of a 
        1940s "super soldier" project

        Putter-on of HoHoCons, former pro-soccer player and always glam 
        rock superstar, Drunkfux has had unprotected anal sex with your

    G.A. Ellsworth | member since July 1988 | Cardinal of the Eastern 
        March

    Obscure Images | member since June 1989 | Director of Insurgence

    White Knight | member since December 1990
        185 lbs of twisted steel and sex appeal.  He is the difference 
        between good and evil, right and wrong.  Sybians want to be him, 
        Jaime Sommers wants to be with him.
	
    The Deth Vegetable | member since December 1990 | Minister of 
        Propaganda
        If everything is to be believed, he has alternately been a Special 
        Forces Commando, Mexican wrestler, comicbook villain, bodyguard to 
        Mr. T, designer drug manufacturer, electronics wizard, and used 
        tire recycler.

    Omega | member since February 1992 | originator of "hacktivism"
        Very mysterious!

    Count Zero | member since February 1992 | Surgeon General of the cDc
        Count Zero is a man of science.  Abandoning a promising career as a
        neurologist and cabaret dancer, he joined the cDc as their official 
        Surgeon General where he performs surgical bio-enhancements on all 
        members to keep them operating at peak performance during space 
        battles and onstage performances.  He is a hacker of the human brain
        and a connoisseur of fine Bordeaux and crunchy breakfast cereals.  
        Ultimately scorned by the medical establishment for his radical 
        ideas and flashy jewelry, he operates out of a hidden medical 
        laboratory beneath the ice cap in Antarctica.  When fighting crime,
        he outfits himself in a black jumpsuit augmented with 
        bio-mechanical weapons and surgically attached robotic homunculi.  
        Turn-ons include long walks in the park and sunsets.  Zero fights 
        the good fight, preparing for the future showdown against the evil 
        robots for the fate of mankind.

    Reid Fleming | member since November 1992 | Powerpuff Girl #4
    
    Mudge | member since February 1996 | cDc Hacker Laureate
        Mudge was separated from his parents on a camping trip as a toddler.  
        Lost and alone in the wilds of New Mexico, he was found by a female 
        coyote and raised as her own pup.  For six years he lived on 
        berries, jackrabbits, and the occasional stolen chicken which he 
        hunted with his canine companions.  At the age of ten, a married 
        couple (both physicists employed at the Atomic Energy Commission's 
        laboratories in Los Alamos) discovered his inhuman plight and 
        adopted him.  It was under their strict home schooling that he 
        discovered the world of computers... and military networks.  Today 
        he is one of the world's top hackers and can still do a piercing 
        coyote howl.

    Oxblood Ruffin | member since April 1996 | cDc's Foreign Minister
        OXblood has roots as a farm boy in Canada.  Bored with plowing, he 
        soon found his role in the air as a hot-shot cropduster pilot.  His
        passion for excitement led him to seek an RCAF assignment, but his 
        unfortunate clubfoot held him back.  Undeterred, he found employment
        flying guns and refugees in the skies over war-torn Laos and 
        Cambodia until 1975.  Returning to his native Regina, he discovered 
        the battlefield of politics to his liking and began a string of 
        unsuccessful bids for office.  He has since given up his own 
        political aspirations for the time being but serves as a speech 
        writer for several major Canadian political figures.

    Krass Katt | member since June 1996 | Pastor of Muppets, she's pulling
        your strings
        Krass Katt's image does not show up on film.  Krass Katt always is, 
        and always has been.  Krass Katt caused the Hindenburg disaster with
        the careless use of her crack pipe.

    Sir Dystic | member since May 1997 | Don't be a statistic, bow down 
        before Sir Dystic!

        showgirl.  We found him living in a dumpster with a Palm Pilot, a 
        case of Astroglide and his latest text file.
